Pulis arrives At Wednesday on Saturday to make Stoke’s life more difficult

Match Preview:  Sheffield Wednesday v Stoke

Saturday’s game has become a much more difficult task with the appointment of Tony Pulis in the opposition dugout. We have an abysmal record against ex managers, I can’t see this game been much different than the other games played against Pulis.

Pulis is still waiting for his first win as Wednesday manager, though he’s only managed them for one game. That game showed he had already installed his ethos into the squad, also some of the set piece routines we have seen while he managed us.

Last fixture at the Hillsborough against Sheffield Wednesday

Stoke started slowly in the game, which is nothing new and found themselves 1-0 down after Massimo Luongo scored shortly before half time. Stoke had already made two changes in the first half as trying to get a foothold in the game but to no avail. Wednesday won the game 1-0 but a spirited second half showing was not capitalised on as only one of our 14 shots resulted in the keeper getting his gloves dirty.

Sheffield Wednesday sit second bottom in the league with only Derby to laugh at bellow them, this is a decent achievement after 13 games having started on -6 points.
Wednesday are in poor form mind you winning once in the last 8 matches, but form could be ripped up with the appointment of a new manager and the bounce that gives.

What do you expect the outcome to be versus Sheffield Wednesday?
